Great views and wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a slower pace than the bustle of Honolulu, check out this apartment. Located on a hillside overlooking Kailua, the views from the large lanai are spectacular.

Patty is the best host you could ever ask for making sure you have everything you need as well as answering all your questions. We arrived late at night and she stayed up to welcome us. We had the lovely gift basket that everyone talks about to get us started in the morning. Other than groceries, we had everything we needed for a great holiday already supplied. The books, toys and bubbles were great for our young children!

The winds were high during our stay, but we still managed to enjoy the local beaches. Our trip to the north shore to watch the 20ft waves was worth the drive.

Kailua is an easy town to navigate and has a slower pace which we really enjoyed. Great food and shopping can easily be found downtown.

If we ever make it back to Oahu we will definitely be looking up Patty and Bob at their Kauhale apartment. The property is a real gem and Patty was family from day one.

We can’t wait to return

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely week at this spacious 1 bedroom. The apartment has everything you need for a beach vacation, from beach chairs to towels to suntan lotion. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with everything you need, including pot and pans and lots of spices. I would definitely recommend this vrbo

Amazing, comfortable family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two daughters ages 13 and 9 had a perfect week stay! Plenty of space for the four of us with a nice large bathroom! Patty and Bob were the kindest hosts who thought of every detail to make the week special for us. From the moment we pulled into the drive way, we felt right at home! From fresh flowers, fluffy bath towels, welcome basket with all kinds of goodies, all the kitchen utensils you could think of to all the beach accessories needed for a fun day at the beach- we were set. We cooked some nights and enjoyed the lanai, hammocks and views. Great location to see the entire island! Thanks for thinking of every detail Patty! Mahalo!

Feel At Home, Relax, and Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

Well this stay just surprised me in the most lovely way every day. I was working most of my trip out to Hawaii, and Patty helped me feel like I was coming home to family every evening. She even offered me a couple of delicious meals - my Hawaiian mom! The place is unbelievably comfortable - you have everything you need and can truly relax. Lots of space, especially for 2 people - huge kitchen, bathroom, two living rooms, the stunning lanai, and large bedroom. No A/C, but fans in every single room and lots of big windows to capture the great breezes. While I was there the washing machine was broken, but Patty offered (and did) my laundry. Incredible right! Likely it will be fixed by the time you stay. Lastly, she has everything you could want for adventure - paddle boards, boogie boards, fins, masks, chairs, towels, bags, and sunscreen...oh and even a safe way to strap the boards to your car! Don't hesitate, just stay here!

Booked this place for a girls getaway - it was the perfect place for us, hands down. I've booked a ton of vacation rentals for group stays, and this place tops my list of homes I've stayed in. It's beautiful, spacious, thoughtfully supplied and decorated. No detail left unanswered, it will have everything you need. The things we most appreciated was the amazing lanai w/ hammocks, plenty of towels (Patty would leave us fresh beach towels for us), the fresh fruit/chips/chocolates/coffee basket upon arrival, beers in the fridge, basket of sunblock/aloe/bug spray, all the water sports equipment you could ever need, the games/toys cabinet - the list goes on and on of things available to the guests. I cannot recommend this place any more, our stay, the host, the property were beyond. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!

another lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Kauhale and it's better than ever! We stayed for 10 nights and our family of 5, including 3 teens, were so comfortable we felt like we were home! Patty and Bob have provided everything we needed for a fantastic vacation: SUP boards, canoe, boogie boards, beach bags, chairs, umbrella, large towels, bikes, I could go on and on! They even have foam rollers to protect the roof of the rental car to transport the equipment to the beach! The apartment itself is just as it is depicted in the photos. It is immaculately clean! The kitchen has full size appliances, the bedroom is cozy, the alcove has a super comfortable bed my girls slept in, and Patty provided a futon for my son. The deck extension is fabulous - my husband and I watched the sunrise there most mornings! I can't say enough wonderful things about this place! Thank you Patty and Bob for accommodating and welcoming our crazy clan back!
